Orkin Canada launches disinfectant service in light of COVID-19
May 8, 2020, Mississauga, Ont. – As businesses seek solutions to keep employees and customers safe, Canada’s leading pest control provider, Orkin, has announced their new Orkin® VitalClean™ service designed to quickly eliminate a wide variety of pathogens.
The Orkin® VitalClean™ service uses a Health Canada-registered disinfectant labeled for use against a wide variety of pathogens and is included on Health Canada’s list of products that meet their criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
When applied at full strength in accordance with the product label, it will kill 100 per cent of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces and will also sanitize soft, porous surfaces.
“Orkin® VitalClean™ is an effective option for helping reduce risk and restore a safer and healthier business environment which is critical to getting our economy up and running again,” said Rob Quinn, senior vice president of Operations, Orkin Canada.
“This product has been used for years to disinfect commercial facilities after pest cleanouts. We are now pleased that it can serve a broader public health purpose as well.”
In dense places where people congregate, if high-touch surfaces such as countertops, fixtures and public seating are not disinfected, harmful viruses can spread rapidly. Just like frequent, careful handwashing is a basic measure for humans to stave off virus transmission, regular large-scale disinfection is imperative to helping keep establishments where people shop, eat and work as protected as possible.
